I see not much has changed since my last post. The “liberals” are still acting like conservatives and the “conservatives” are still acting like liberals LMAO.
I take exception to all the name calling and the like. Once again I say to you this is not making a difference. All those reading just ignore the good as well as the bad as long as it is wrapped in bigotry, slander, and out and out disrespect for the others posting here.
The one post that truly holds the most truth has been nearly totally ignored. Our problems run much deeper than the piddley little arguments going on here. We have a problem with efficiency. As energy was always cheap and easy to get we as a world and a society have taken the easy way out. Instead of working to improve existing systems, we have just continued to waste what we have had.
I grasp the idea that very few could/can afford to “change” the way they live AND maintain a standard of living where they could “keep up with the Jones’” But soon there will be no choice. Blame who or what you will but in the end every one of us is to blame.
We waste our money on things we do not need. We waste our words on those who either do not know any better or do not care about anything but themselves. Faith covers all that we cannot explain.
Technically the only jobs, therefore the only unemployment, the government can tracks are those it has control over. As unemployment insurance is a government run entity it has no way of tracking the millions of people, like me, that have never been on its roles. In my 50+ years of life I have never collected a single dime from the government. If I choose to be “without a job” it is my business and they have no way of tracking that.
Studies are great for “creating” jobs out of thin air. They keep a segment of our population employed and looking useful. But they are still flawed in very basic ways. As someone quoted, it is impossible to know if the results of the study are a reflection of what would have happened if the government stood by and watched or a result of the billions of dollars created from thin air and passed out to a select few in our country.
As anyone who has “gotten into trouble” with credit knows, if you continue to borrow against tomorrow sooner or later time runs out and there is no tomorrow to borrow against. The jobs that were saved/created by borrowing from next week, month, or year, will soon cease to exist. It is impossible for them not to. Our government……. This means all of it as neither of the two main parties is any different than the other, Is hoping that sometime next week, month, or year, something will magically happen to create jobs out of thin air and replace the “fake” ones they have created in order to remain in power and to keep the money and goods they have already stolen from the rest of us.
History tells us it will not work. History also tells us that at some point the borrowed money and time has to be paid back. It is then that we will all truly suffer.
